Citric Acid (active ingredient) - The citric acid cycle, also known as the Krebs Cycle (named after the biochemist who identified it), is a source of energy for all living cells. It begins with the break-down of glucose (sugar) molecules to carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O) and ultimately forms citric acid. This citric acid is believed to produce the energy needed for cell function and support that enables the production, rapid regeneration and repair of cells including skin cells.

white petrolatum - the "oily" part used to soften dry skin and help drive water to its under layers.
propylene glycol - used as a solvent to combine and hold together the other ingredients
